Josh,

Thanks for venting your sports frustrations here, in the SAS programming language.  I've attended many hockey games and experienced lots of language shouted by the fans, but never any that was punctuated by so many semicolons.

In hockey apathy,

Chris

And being a hockey player...I have USED much of that same language shouted by fans during a game; however, those explicatives would not be appropriate in this setting...  Additionally, I have to agree that I never would have thought that semicolons could pack the same punch as exclamation points, but I guess they can! :smileygrin:

Thanks for the virtual therapy!  I think I am cured...for now.
